A Different Sort of Grow Operation

Spring has sprung

Nothing says spring in the Valley, and generally throughout Squarebanks than the grow operations that are springing up everywhere; some are fairly fancy with banks of shops lights, seed starter, 4-packs, cells and flats. Many are yogurt & cottage cheese containers and anything else that can hold some soil and a seed - crowding window sills and sunny floor spots and anywhere a little plant can get a ray of sun.

I am, of course, talking about the annual rite of spring - starting the garden indoors.

This surely was one sorry-ass long, dismal winter for this former cabin-dweller, and if I never go through the same sort of caca again, I will be forever grateful and happy...warmth, sun, and lots of deck sitting with various forms of booze got here just in time!

Nice 'before' chicken pictures. It must be very unpleasant hanging out in that coop at 40 below - guess the birds get cabin fever, too.
